I was at Target a couple days ago and saw these Pina Colada Marshmallows from Kraft Jet-Puffed

My heart skipped a beat. Marshmallows and pina colada in one? These were tailor-made for me and instantly went into my cart.

Target has some great finds. Sure, I need that new sports bra color, those new seasonal M & Ms that if I don’t buy them now I’ll never be able to get them again, that new body wash scent. Too many great finds for my wallet to handle. You can relate, I’m sure.

I just made Pina Colada Cookies and wish I would have had the pina colada marshmallows to include. Just means I’ll have to make another batch of cookies. Oh darn.

I haven’t even opened the marshmallows yet and am storing them in a sealed Ziplock in my pantry until I figure out what I’m doing with them.

Even in the sealed bag, the strong coconutty, tropical pina scent is ridiculously intense. They are the marshmallow equivalent of Drakkar cologne. Remember that stuff? Strong, potent, intense, you can smell it from a mile away and probably shouldn’t like it but you do. At least when you’re in ninth grade.

I also picked up these little vanilla marshmallow bits. I have a few recipes I’m going to put these into and they’re are also great by the handful in hot chocolate.

I’m a big fan of the sweet white puffballs in just about any form.

I made Peanut Butter Cocoa Krispies Smores Bars for a friendly little competition.

A friend and fellow San Diegan won, but I still had fun including most every item from my baking pantry into the recipe.

Other marshmallow recipes:

Deep Dish Double Chocolate Golden Grahams Smores Bars (Vegan & GF options)

White Chocolate Vanilla Marshmallow Cake Bars

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough & Marshmallow Stuffed Rice Krispie Bars (No Bake)

Marshmallow Peanut Butter Double Chocolate Pillowtop Bars (GF with Vegan options)

  1. I really connected with Ganesh while I was in India. Everywhere I went, I just couldn’t get enough! I would LOVE a shirt like that. You’re right, they do look very, very comfy :)

  2. Marshmallows are alright, but caramel + chocolate + marshmallows is even better.

  3. I don’t know how I missed them before, but I just got back from a weekend of camping and those s’more rice krispie treats are just PERFECT for weaning off the real things :) Deelish!

  4. Pina Colada? I am so getting those! I am interested to see what you make with them. I am making it a rule that I can’t look at your blog at night because I immediately want to go make or eat something sweet!

  5. I’ve not seen those yet and it most likely is a really good thing. Otherwise, my closet and shelf organizing project would be ditched to the sidelines as I played in the kitchen with these babies.

  6. I seriously bought those marshmallow awhile back, and they inspired me to try to make some pina colada marshmallows from scratch. My first attempt was a bust, but I really need to try that again!

  7. I know you’re not vegan, but since you seem to eat marshmallows, I’m curious – what are your thoughts on gelatin? I personally don’t eat any gelatin or rennet but a lot of vegetarians do.

  8. These marshmallows seriously just made my day – I need to find them asap! I’m so glad you shared your find with us.
